This magnificent Philips classic car radio will be a stylish addition to your European classic (sports) car. The radio is in excellent condition and it is even fitted with all the original wiring and plugs! As you can see in the pictures the centre of the radio front looks greyish, this will be perfected to full black with a special coat of plastic wax before the radio is being shipped to the new owner! This vitage Philips radio will fit any classic car which is prepared by the factory to receive a radio. These Philips units are normally seen in open sports cars and sporty saloons / coupé’s of the 1970s, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Triumph Spitfire and TR 6, MGB, Lotus Elan and many more. This Philips transistor radio has been refurbished for Classentials. This radio will upgrade your classic automobile and it will enhance your driving experience because the dashboard is what YOU are looking at while enjoying your classic (sports) car! Enjoy the sound of the 1970s via your dashboard speaker or add an extra speaker in the rear to surround yourself with music!
Installing: Basic car conditions before installation: Radio prepared car with dashboard openings, 12V power lead, analog telescopic antenna, standard (dashboard speaker) with wiring.
Handy customers experienced with working and tinkering on classic cars can install a radio by themselves. All others we strictly advise to have their vintage radio installed by an experienced mechanic / electrician / local garage. The radio will be easy to install in a factory prepared car. In case your dashboard aperture / mount has been changed by previous owners over the last 40 -50 years you might need, or have to make, different parts to make the radio fit properly.
NOTE: If the radio is to be fitted in a more modern classic (1975<) featuring a 1-DIN dashboard aperture you will need to order a Classentials 1-DIN radio mount separately, see accessories.
*1.5 years (18 months) European / US warranty (See About Us / FAQ). In the rare case that a reliable Philips transistor radio stops working you send it back to us for immediate exchange (in case a comparable unit is in stock) or repair. The radio is sealed before shipping with a unique numbered security seal which cannot be tampered with. If this seal is damaged / broken the warranty will be void. This unit does not have a scale lamp, but hey, who cares about that in a proper sports car!
“Enjoy the Ride!”
